was a really bad time? the george w. bush presidency was a really bad time. and not just if you were a liberal and you disagreed with george w. bush, just if you were an american, the george w. bush presidency, the bush/cheney years were bad years for us as a country. the national ubunemployment rate went from a little over 4% when he took office to nearly 8% by the time he left. we went from a budget surplus of more than $200 billion to a budget deficit of more than a trillion dollars. after decades of u.s. household income climbing during the 1980s and 1990s, it fell off a cliff in the bush years. after poverty declined in the 1980s and declined in the 1990s, in the bush years, it went up. by the time he left office, 6 million more americans were added to the rolls of americans who didn't have health insurance. wall street in the bush years collapsed. the country was plunged into the worst depression since the great depression in the 1930s. the bush/cheney years were a disaster. they were also a series of embarrassments. remember when they were going to but harriet miers on the supreme court
shooting a guy in the face. there's a reason george w. bush left office in january 2009 with the lowest approval rating for an outgoing president since galt started asking that question back in the 1930s. and frankly, the vice president, dick cheney, would have killed to get numbers that high. his approval rating was 13% when he left office. part of the headwind that john mccain had running in 2008, trying to run as a republican after george w. bush and dick janney was george w. bush and dick cheney. the country was happy to see them go for understandable reasons. four years after the bush/cheney administration, the new republican party nominee, mitt romney, has made precisely zero public appearanced with george w. bush or dick cheney. this is still the most interesting thing in american politics. the reconstruction of the republican party post-george w. bush and post-dick cheney is as yet incomplete and still the most interesting thing to watch. hot is the new republican party going to be after that? what is the new republican party leadership going to be after them? all of this has le

earned 88% of the african-american vote against george w. bush. >>> still, some members of the audience gave romney credit for simply taking the time to address the convention. but that doesn't mean the audience agreed with what he was saying. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find. that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ crowd booing ] >> romney said he anticipated a tough response from the crowd and following the speech, he told a group of donors quote, your friends who like obama care, you remind them of this -- if they want more stuff from the government, tell them to go vote for the other guy. more free stuff. but don't forget, nothing is really free. it has to be paid for by people in the private sector creating goods and services, end quote. the obama campaign said in statement at the naacp leaders in the african-american community recognize the devastating impact mitt romney's policies would have on working families. >>> a new campaign ad from the obama campaign accuses romney of supporting tax breaks for special
. he is a former speech writer for george w. bush. i would wonder whether the romney campaign wanted to be booed at the naacp. that whole line, could he maybe been aiming at his own base with that one? >> i asked the romney campaign that very question when we had a chance to talk with them. they did not respond to that question but were peppered with so many questions i think they were having trouble answering all of them. they didn't have time to answer all of them. i will say that mitt romney did get a lot of conservative props on twitter and social media for coming to this group and sticking to his principles and policy positions. he did not tailor his speech. he said he would repeal the president's signature legislative achievement, that is the health care law and tipped off a number of other iemts. and so even the leadership of the naacp that i talked to after this event were saying mitt romney showed a lot of courage in coming here today. >> speaking of props you eluded to this. this is something in which romney got a much better response. take a listen. >> any policy that lift

tradition. john mccain did only give two years, which is fair to say. but george w. bush gave eight years of tax returns. john kerry gave 20. my god, i can't even believe he saved 20 years. president obama gave 12 years. jonathan, that's the point. i -- how do you graciously, if you're mitt romney, give in here? >> well, there's no gracious way to give in anymore, because he's had his back up against the wall for so long. but there still is the opportunity to give in, get it out there and move on for him. i mean, you know, those of us who have, you know, gone to kind of crisis communications 101 have taken those -- 101 course of crisis communications understand that you've got something that you don't think people are going to like, the best thing you can do is get it out there and get it over with. meanwhile, mitt romney, you notice, continues to dance around the subject and dance around the subject, giving us lots to talk about on cable tv, speculating what's in it, speculating what might be in it. it's fun for us. >> one night of aggressive hits on the low tax rate in 2009 or whatever

the president is. the president i think faces a reality much like george w. bush did in 2004. it is absence on bigger recovery. it is entirely possible he will get to election day without 50% of the voters saying they approve. some increment of voters he has to find a way to convince them to stick with him. the way you do that is by making the challenger up acceptable to voters. this struggle between the two sides to defind what the bain experience is whether it shows romney to be someone who has personified the problem i think is going to be a central tipping point in this race. >> even republican alabama governor robert bentley is chiming in saying release the tax returns although now he is saying his words is taken out of context. are republicans in large numbers also questioning romney's approach here? >> a few other conservative commentators, what romney is doing is somewhat unusual. he drew a very hard line saying you are not getting anymore tax returns from 2010 and 2011. the tax returns, the bain experience and offshore accounts is all part of one kind of broad set of issues that th

since 1988 when george h.w. bush carried it that year. look, we see the likes of joe biden now spending a lot of time in pennsylvania. let's not forget, go back to 2008, wolf, when president obama back in 2008 said that very ill-fated phrase. he said people are clinging to their guns and their religion. that is something that will not play very well in pennsylvania. but also in pennsylvania it also shows that in fact when you look at these numbers right here as far as television advertising right now, we've seen barack obama is spending money right now. more than $3 million right now, wolf, he is spending on tv advertising so far to carry his message. >> yeah. he doesn't want to take any chances. by the way, he said those less than artful words out in san francisco. >> he did. but it carried back. >> everybody heard it immediately all over the place. thanks very much. >>> take a look at this. we have some live pictures of the president of the united states in sandusky, ohio. there he is at the top of your screen in the middle there. he's shaking hands, meeting with folks. the president
's right. but george w. bush should have gone in his first term too and he did not. he's making the mistake his predecessor made. it's a valid criticism. the president of either party needs to go to israel, support israel. >> there's pictures when he was there in 2008 as a candidate. but as president, mary, he went to egypt, turkey, a whole bunch of other countries. >> but bush was not anti-israel even though he didn't go his first term. president obama has been very strongly supportive of israel as president and he will be if and when he gets a second term. that's the most important. >> that's not the reflection or the opinion of those who know the most about israel. they do not think he's been strong on israel. and i'd like to remind everybody what's happening in the first term -- >> i will say as someone who studied the u.s.-israeli relationship for a long, long time on a military to military relationship to intelligence is very strong right now between the united states and israel. there may be some personal irritation between netanyahu and president obama, but on a substantiative issue
doubled its effort to allow the george w. bush era tax cuts to expire for the wealthiest americans. a policy that should be an easy sell to the remaining 98% of americans. but where he needs to be fiery and passionate, he stood in a business suit behind a lectern in the executive mansion making a presentation that was almost apologetic. >> yeah, i'm not sure i really agree with that. i think the timing on this first, if you want to talk the raw campaign politics, the timing on this makes a lot of sense because we're having all this discussion about mitt romney's finances, mitt romney's effective tax rate, mitt romney's offshore holdings. this is a great time to introduce something like this subject. but what this really is, this is setting the stakes for this election because obviously, anything that obama tries to do right now, obviously anything the house republicans try to do right now in the bush tax cut, it doesn't matter. what matters is what happens in december, in the lame duck session. after this election. this is really setting the terms starkly. what obama will come up a

governor george w. bush running against al gore pledged to give that money back to the taxpayers. >> we don't believe the surplus is the government's money. we know the surplus is the people's money. we're going to send some of that money back to the people that pay the bills. >> and send it back he did. when he became president through temporary tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 known as the bush tax cuts. the first of those tax cuts were set to expire back in 2010 but the economy was still shaky back then so vice president biden and senator mitch mcconnell struck a deal to extend them for two more years for everyone. now those tax cuts are set to expire again at the end of this year. it is part of the so-called fiscal cliff that economists are warning the u.s. could go over if congress doesn't deal with it. president obama says let's extend them for another year but and this is the key point, not for everyone, just for what he calls the middle class, families earning less than $250,000 per year or individuals earning less than 200,000. >> i believe that we should make sure the taxes on the 98% of
but he's never going to make george w. bush's numbers among latinos. it's really doubtful whether he'll make john mccain's numbers among latinos and that's the really hard deficit for him to make up. same with young voters. it's not whether they show up or not. it's the margin of victory for obama. at the moment, it looks like it will be a blowout with young people and with latinos. i don't know what's going to change that. >> i'm just surprised how anemic the effort has been on the side of the romney campaign understanding how much ground they have to make up. but of course, there are months left until november. maybe there will be something huge we just don't know about. >>> after the break, we the people or me the people? kevin bleyer is out with a new book suggesting some dramatic rewrites to the u.s. constitution. he's coming up next on "now." you have to scrub it first. no you don't. yes, you do! don't! do! whoa, kitchen counselor here. see cascade complete pacs work like micro-scrubbing brushes to help power away tough foods even in corners and edges. hmm! cascade. love it or

the prosperity of the '90s. they are people whose main experiences were in the last decade under george w. bush, during the financial crisis, during the iraq war. >> and you write of them, you know, you say that there was a lot of emphasis on -- they were idealistic. all of these people are very idealistic. a lot of emphasis on diplomacy rather than more of the hawkish tactics of the administration that preceded them. and you said this about them. you said the obamians tended to know less about the nuances and subtleties of the issues and less concerned about the practical details of governance. they were, however, more adept at providing a determined opposition to the republicans and much better at figures out what to say in the public about foreign policy. tell me how that maybe has evolved for them over the past few years. >> right. it's interesting, because those -- i wrote those words about them during -- as they were in 2008, they were more politically attuned, i think, than not just the mccain forces but also hillary clinton's team. and as it's evolved, they are still intensely political
same tax cuts that were a big part of the presidential race 12 years ago when george w. bush ran for the first time against a sitting vice president, al gore. back in the good old days of the year 2000 race the u.s. treasury was bringing in an annual surplus, revenues, mostly taxes were about 2 trillion bucks. uncle sam was spending 1.8 trillion leaving $2 trillion left over. governor bush was calling for tax cuts to give the surplus back to the american people. vice presidental gore said he wanted to keep the money in a lockbox to pay for entitlements in the future. as you know george w. bush won that election and the argument. he signed into law the tax cuts that now bear his name in 2001 creating six tax brackets with a top marginal rate of 35%. they didn't provide relief only to the rich. the lowest tax bracket dropped from 15% to 10%. just three months later the deadliest attack ever on u.s. soil sent the nation's economy reeling. wall street shut down, financial markets in a tailspin. president bush called for another round of tax cuts to jump start the economy. in 2003 pre

's the impact is same as george w. bush that two state solution and they have got to stop building the settlement. bush said that day-in and day-out. as you know, bush never went to israel in his first term. right? so i just think i guess maybe we have an obligation as reporters to try to find out what the truth is you know. >> right. no. i hear you. this speech, itself is interesting and it comes a couple of days after obama signed legislation that increases military aid to israel but looking at romney's remarks, he made the point that as american shouldn't just be military intelligence and those who seek to undermine israel maybe out over the base but i have not really heard recently an implicit specific case made as to what those criticisms are. i am not a foreign policy expert by any extent. >> one other thing when romney is in jerusalem, he gives an interview to david muir of abc and david muir said you travel overseas but you still got these political problems back at home. there is a lot of flap about your tax returns and romney repeated he was on
on the bailouts, a lot of the same things with detroit, he just would have. you know why? because george w. bush -- >> did a lot -- >> basically did the same things. he wouldn't have gone forward -- actually, he may have gone forward to health care because the "usa today" op-ed in 2009 told barack obama you need to have an vidindividual mandate. >> there's not a big difference between these two guys. for my republican friends that get mad when i say that, go look at his record. it's right there. he's not a conservative. >> look, i mean how he governed in massachusetts. the health care law was the predecessor for obama care, right? romney came in, inherited a bad economic situation, talked about how he had to turn it around which is what obama is doing. he raised fees rather than taxes. obama has not raised taxes yet. i mean there's a lot of actual parallels between how mitt romney operated in massachusetts and obama operates. i'm not saying they're the same people. they have a different perspective on government. >> and different world view. i think one of the important things about this speech
